2024 Education Law Section Annual Program

Education law is a uniquely complex area of practice that is constantly evolving. Education attorneys serve institutions that must balance the challenges of creating an environment that is conducive for student learning while adapting to the ever-changing legal landscape.

This program explores several important areas of education law, including the recently enacted Parents Bill of Rights, common issues in employment law, and the much-anticipated changes to the Title IX regulations. The content is designed for education law practitioners who represent public and private elementary, secondary and post-secondary schools, and includes topics of interest to both the junior and seasoned attorney.

  • Employment Law: Significant Issues and Implications for Educational Institutions
  • A Balancing Act: Ethical Considerations for Attorneys Representing Governmental Entities
  • Special Education: Administrative Rule Changes for Due Process Petitions
